During the second week in October, the Quinta de Cima course near Tavira in Eastern Algarve hosted the 'Algarve Seniors Portuguese Open', the second last tournament of this year's 'PGA European Seniors Tour'. Sam Torrance, seeking to overtake Carl Mason in his bid to win the Order of Merit, had an excellent opportunity on the penultimate green to break out of a 4-way tie for first place with Jerry Bruner, Eddie Polland and Jose Rivero. He unfortunately missed a slick downhill 8-footer putt for birdie. Sam Torrance then had to pull out all the stops on the difficult par-4 final hole after Jerry Bruner hit his second shot onto the putting surface, some 30 feet from the hole, and he followed suit by placing his ball a few feet closer. However, it was the American who sank his left to right putt, and under this added pressure, Sam Torrance missed, leaving him in a tie on 10 under par with Eddie Polland and Jose Rivero. The result left the Scot a mere 245 Euros ahead of Carl Mason in the Order of Merit going into the final Seniors event in Bahrain from 10th to the 12th November.
